Ji A IL llO.ll LANDS.
Tlio Oregon Hallway & Navigation
Co. own in thin and linker county
nearly tiilOU acre of laud, most of it
lying near North Powder These
, lands are iim-tly covered with siifje
brush, and are dry desert lands. The
company ask for those, lands from $1.
to $10. per acre, owing to location,
payable in' six annual payments. The
company make a very line showing in
their pamphlets how easy ills to buy
these lands at. tho pi Ices asked, and
hnve besides the !aud piircha-od,
a snug little sum left at the expiration
ot six years. I ludeive these sage brush
lands can be cultivated with the same
profit, as the lauds in (irande Uonde
valley known as the Sand Hidge, but
never, as long as such exorbitant pri
ces are asked for the lirst cost of tiiiini
proved land. Kit) acres iit-'?IO. per acre
would cost the buyer d PICO besides the
interests on (he live annul payments so
that, the first cost, of t lie laud yroiihl
exceed S-'ouo. Add to this the co l of
necessary buildings, farm implements
and slock to carry on farming, togeth
er wilb Ihe cost of fencing, seed etc,
al least $-JuW or .;M)00 more making a
total of l..rm nr ?:.000 before the.
ground is in rulliviilimi knocks 1 lit
bottom out of (lie prosperity of those
whom Ihe railroad company would
have you believe to be so prosperous
by buying their valuable (?) lauds.
If the company would olfer their bet
lands at 1. per acre it might be pos
sible. t,o buy tlicni mid improve them.
.Tusl as lollg as Mich price .11 o de
manded tor these lands, just so Jong
will they remain an idle waste of sae
brush, bunging in nothing to the
railroad company, except heavy bills
for the taxes. Much impiiry has been
made in regard to these lands by those
who are anxious to gel them, but Ihe
price for each class of lands m o be
yond the reach of most men who care
for them, and preclude ihe possibility
of making it profitable by inves
ting so much money in ho small
amount of unimproved lauds. We
hope to see the time .shortly when
these lauds will be placed at stieh lig
nres as will justify pirsons in buying
them for the purpose ot cultivation.

The general belief here in regard to
working the roads Ibis year is that it
will be much heller for us that the
wtirk on the streets ot I'liioii should
be placed upon the roads leading to
th's place. Our streets are in line
condition and have been all winter,
while many of Ihe highways centering
here, need a largo atuounl ot labpr ex
pcuded upon (hem to make them what
they should be good roads. It makes
no differeii'-e to farmers and others
bow good our streets may be, if the
roads leading here are almost impas
sible a portion of (bo time. This is
not the case, however, as tlio roads
leading here, are perhaps belter than
the roads leading into any other town
in I'iiSou county , but we want them
still improved and it can be done
v itlioiit any detriment to our streets
this year. And as the people of this
town are willing to have their road
work placed upon our roads, there
can bo no gd reason why it should
not bo so placed. One of tho bust
things a place can havo Is to Its ap
proaches rood roads (livo us good
roads ami Union will always bo found
us she Is to-day, tho fore most town In

Union, and llio.se who havo to travel

uiidorbtaudlug ot tho pooplo. wiion i
permission was given to chango tho
old road to tho present one. Wo ho
llo vo tho railroad company or the
fontrn-toiR, whichever it may be,
should be compollod to build tho road
where it was: agiced that it should run
if the temporary change was allowed.

Victoria ami her advisers
have ccrtainlv an eve to business. The
old lady has her heart sel on the Im
perial Institute as the niot lilting
memorial of her jubilee year, and her
agents, presumably not without her
consent, are renoi'lniy; to all sorts
nff.flienif!s to raiso fund. Where heir-
ging will not accomplish the desired
obioct. bulldozing is iitcd. A Tri
dune's recent cable copyught .-ays
that a new sort of pressure is being
tried in behalf of this Imperial Insti
tute. It is now given out that
Knighthood will be withheld from the
mr.vors who have not rnied subscrip
tions for (he Institute. Mnnyof these
functionaries have preferred lo pro
mote local objects in connection with

A mouth of ihe inter-.-tate commerce
law does not seem to increase its pop
ularitv. The aim of Ihe law was o
bcniflt the many at the expense of the
corporatinos. From a brief experience
Ihe law seems to worU lo the benefit of i
a verv few at the expense of many,
and it is as favorable lo the railroads
as though Ihe law had been drawn for
their cxpro-s benefit. The commis
sion is overwhelmed with appeals for
relief from the hardships claimed to
be effected by the law, and Irom the
coiirce so far pur.-iiod by the board the
fourth section is.av be suspended all
over the country. It is a disappoint

If Englisnmen are getting control of
large tracts of Amoi irinii lands in

playing even by corraling tlio irrig
blc lands on the banks of the Murray
river, in AiMralia, somewhat on the
"desert land act" principle. The
